Use Knife (BE)

Use Knife coincides Western underground music with traditional Arab music culture into a genuine melting pot of unique musical current. Their music is composed around propulsive electronic rhythms, ricocheting sequenced melodies and samples and vibrant Arabic drum rhythms.

Use Knife is a new musical outfit, in which Stef Heeren and Kwinten Mordijck, both members of Kiss The Anus Of A Black Cat, unleash their mutual love for analog and modular electronic machinery. Saif Al-Qaissy (Babylon Trio) invokes fierce Arabic percussion grooves and sermons vocal energies. Use Knife is the trio’s musical vehicle to explore and express hallucinatory freethinking visions to contemporary global living.

Use Knife is collaborating with Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem in my HeartHotel2Tango) for the production of their debut full album, as well as joining the band on buzuk and synths on one lengthy track, and with Youniss Ahamad for live visuals and scenography.

Debut album ’The Shedding of Skin’ to be released on 30/09/22 by VIERNULVIER records. Co-production by STUK, Wilde Westen, Trix, De Grote Post, AB.

Use Knife will perform at Sonic Ciy festival on November 13, organized by Wilde Westen.
